The best time to hear complete silence is after a big snowfall.
This is when silence is at it’s peak.
The air is cool, the snowflakes are quietly falling into their piles. No one is outside.
Animals are tucked into their earth homes or hanging out in some protective evergreen trees.
Occasionally, one might hear some car tires crunching over the freshly plowed snow.
But most of the time it is quiet and peaceful.
Soon, the snowfall ends and the silence becomes normal again with snow plows, shovels scratching against concrete, and children playing loudly with their snow games.
